Housebuilder Barratt Developments, which includes the Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes brands, has launched seven new developments over a short seven-week period, delivering 1,183 new homes and supporting 609 jobs region-wide.
A total of £154m has been invested into seven new sites across the Yorkshire East region, creating 1,183 brand-new two, three, four and five-bedroom homes. The new developments include Prospect Rise in Whitby, Kingsley Meadows in Harrogate, Harrier Chase in Brough, Poppy Fields in Cottingham, Fairfield Croft in York and Torne Farm and Park Edge in Doncaster.
The much-welcomed instalment of the new developments will help address a region-wide housing shortage and create over 600 employment opportunities across a number of disciplines, from construction trades through to head office support positions.
Daniel Smith, managing director of Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, said: “We’re delighted to have launched seven brand-new developments in the Yorkshire East region, and are confident that both first-time buyers and families alike will benefit from the stunning new homes available. We’re confident that the local communities and economy in Yorkshire will benefit from the new homes and jobs available.”
